Dexter: A POEM

Dexter: A POEM

Stuck in the tar
Like a maga
Jittery and abandoned!
Afraid and stunned!
Forgotten!
Like a prodigal son

And like the yolk of an egg
I am caged by this wet rag
Waiting for time to pass
To be eaten like grass

I have nowhere to run
No one to pawn
Life made me a slave
Like a lost cause from a pit
I am a piece of shit
Dragged on the sleeve

Life gave me the kiss of Judas
It betrayed me; it killed me
It dashed the evil ones lavished wealth
Slapped the good ones with suffering
A motionless movement of the mouse
Me?
It gave me a drought
Wicked pouring

The wicked have prospered
Good is of no use!
There is good in evil
Busted!
Life is a curse!
A Maelstrom pill...

For Dexter...

      You are right, teaches. Many Dexter-like folks roam the streets beaten and molested by the troubles of life. I pray they find peace. Thanks for adding your voice here. blessings.
